TBI releases the 2010 Crime on Campus Report

 

Tennessee Bureau of InvestigationNashville, TN – The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation today released the 2010 “Crime on Campus” Report which shows a statewide decrease of crime on Tennessee’s campuses after a slight spike in reported offenses for the previous year. Prior to 2009, the state saw a decrease of crime on campus every year between 2004 and 2008.
 
There were 7,190 offenses reported in 2010 compared with 7,538 in 2009, a 4.6% decrease overall. However, violent crime was up nearly 20%, from 102 in 2009 to 122 offenses in 2010. The previous year’s increase in number of offenses reported was attributed by universities to a 10% increase of enrollment on college campuses possibly due to economic conditions of the state. The number of crimes reported on campuses are still up overall from where they were several years ago.
